is not raising taxes or medicare or social security n. 30 years, medicare and medicaid alone will consume all the revenue coming in taxes. these are unsustainable entitlement programs. they have to be reformed to save the program and to keep the country from going into a greek-reich status. there are $8.6 trillion of unfunded like the in social security. to make it solvent the next 75 years, you valid to put $8 trillion in the bank today. for medicare, it's three times that, so if you don't reform entitlements, you will never avoid the coming grief. post-election, democrats have the wind behind their back, the president does on this. is there any appetite for this or is it going to be a bloodbath? >> a lot of democrats understand that medicare -- social security runs out of money in 2033. medicare runs out of money in 2024. so these programs literally go bankrupt. if you want to save them, you have to restructure them. younger people need to work longer. me and you, we make enough money to pay more into the system without losing our quality of life. age adjustment and means testing will help
